February 16, 2009I thought $20 was a good price for a Hooker....
February 17, 2009Hey Smokeater & Sniperking! I have not seen you guys in a while.
February 17, 2009Yeah been around just a bit busy..... Thanks for noticing...
February 17, 2009I wanna see pics of the now famous, Road King that made the magazines!
February 17, 2009I just bought a spare set. They were out of the slash cut black Fourbiddens, so I got the set in silver ceramic instead.
So, the pipes, and extra set of slash cut tips, and baffle, shipped to my door for under 250.00. GREAT DEAL!
If I don''t use them, i''ll sell them. If I decide to use them, i''ll wrap them up good and throw them on.
Chatted with the tech and sales people about the situation.
It had NOTHING to do with quality issues like tons of others are claiming but a simple decision due to increasing EPA standards and concentrating on the automotive aftermarket instead. They wanted to focus more in this direction.
According to the sales teams they were all shocked of this news. Their sales had been good up until this point with no hint of slumping.
My guess is that someone will pick their patent and start reproducing these pipes soon.
February 24, 2009Yeah Doubles...it nice to be back. It''s been a loooooong winter! Moved to a different FD, and adopted a child. So, between the two, my life took a heck of a change for a few months, and haven''t had time to check in. Even thought I was gonna have to sell my scoot. Turns out I made things work. Now just waiting for some good weather, and a babysitter for the riding season. LOL!
February 24, 2009Smoke,
Congrats on the adoption, and I''m stoked you got to keep your bike. I remember you posting last fall that you might have to sell it. Are you still in the same area in IL? Good to see you back.
February 24, 2009Takes a lotta balls to adopt.....congratulations!.Wonderful!
February 25, 2009Thanks guys! The boy we adopted was actually my nephew. He was my wifes siters child, we took him at 9 months. Long story short......he had 13 different fractures that they found on him at 3 months old, and dad is now in jail for child abuse. My wifes sister...well, she probaly belongs in jail, but she isn''''t yet. He was in foster for a while, before he could be up for guardianship. We had to fly out to San Diego(this is where they live) for about a week, go to court, testify, blah, blah,blah, before the judge made his decision who he would go with. It was between us and the paternal grandparents. So, two days later we came home with a child. Talk about a culture shock! No time to prepare for much. But, he is all healed now from the fractures and is doing great.
Oh, doubles, I just got hired at a department closer to my home. Much shorter commute!
February 26, 2009Smoke,
By all accounts, you are a stand up guy. I wish you and your new son all the best and it''s great you work closer to home now. Nice to hear some good news these days!
